whistleblower at large abroad snowden gets an invitation to venezuela with president might do or offering him humanitarian asylum but it remains unclear just how you can reach the safe haven. deadly divide in egypt thirty six killed and more than one thousand injured and nationwide clashes between opponents and supporters of president morsy with rival groups continue their projects. on the rise of a privacy the youth threatens to spawn data sharing with the gloss over the n.s.a.'s vast snooping program despite revelations france's embracing similar tactics.
this is us he coming to live from moscow hello and welcome to the program venezuela has extended a helping hand to the man who exposed world wide surveillance by the u.s. government edward snowden's finally received an asylum offer after being stranded in the transit zone of moscow's sheremetyevo airport for two weeks after his tone bottom. could it be the end of edward snowden's long isolation here at moscow's sheremetyevo airport his limbo in the transit area here or so we think as best we can tell we've not seen him for two months it seems his options were running out but now after these two weeks two offers possible offers of asylum the first one from venezuela as we heard announced by president nicolas maduro but a single carol i have decided to offer humanitarian asylum to the young american
edward snowden in the homeland of simon bolivar and others and snowden can come and live here away from the persecution of american imperialism another possible offer coming from president daniel ortega of nicaragua he's saying that if the circumstances permitted snowden may be able to go there as well so possibly to safe havens to exit routes for the now famous or infamous depending on how you look at six mass surveillance whistleblower edward snowden's main obstacle really at the moment is the fact that he has no documents that would allow him to travel his passport his u.s. passport having been a know he would need paperwork to travel on to work venezuela or nicaragua however there are two other problems seeing as he would most probably be flying there one is u.s. air space there are no doubt direct flights to venezuela he would conceivably at
some point may have to cross u.s. airspace which could present quite obvious problems and also crossing e.u. space a number of countries in the e.u. recently received a tongue lashing from the bolivian president while his plane had to be stopped in austria because of suspicions perhaps that snowden was on board so possible complications there it does seem they could be many complications in edward snowden's possible. so for flight to venezuela i want to correct you. so as not and apply for asylum all over the wild but his requests have been rejected by a host of nations including european ones found a wide awake needs china graph of size that e.u. nations don't want to upset the u.s. despite its not going to reveal how much washington spied on. the laundry list of nations that snowden has applied to for asylum include scores these european
nations that are just all giving the same excuses that he's got to either show up on their soil or in their embassy you know the information that's been released has shown that our allies in europe were the one the in a lot of cases the ones being spied on so for them just to play the well we don't want to we don't want to upset the americans so we're going to give the standard answer no you know no comment or he's got to show up at the embassy it's it's very much a pressure rating for people like me that want to see the truth come out but when even when you expose the truth even when you give it this truth to the people who are being spied on they won't step up and support truth so yeah it is a bit frustrating to to see these european nations just kind of ignore this outright spying that's happening. and europe also appears no stranger to spying on its citizens that's after it's released it's revealed france also has its own large scale eavesdropping program reports suggest huge amounts of power and internet data
are being monitored and stored in a dry and bunker beneath parts stay with r.t. for more details coming out of its own legs and. egypt's limits who support the deposed president mohamed morsi are vying for the protests until he's by last night's violence thirty six people killed and more than a thousand wounded in clashes between rival groups meanwhile egypt's new interim president is expected to name a new cabinet belcher who has been following the situation for us in cairo. you know all second downtown cairo in the capital there were fierce clashes between supporters and opponents of the former president mohamed morsi i was actually in the street battles myself my source of billions with guns them on the tops of rocks people were breaking up into the pavement to throw at each other to stretch across three of the major bridges between on either side of the between these rival protest groups the security forces got involved for
a while but they couldn't contain the violence we have heard that the interim president is expected to announce his cabinet this is hopefully going to put down some of the state institutions that we can try and sort out the situation in the country which is becoming impossible in addition there have been grimace of talks begin between the muslim brotherhood group which is the islamist party that the deposed president hails from people are looking to the miniature right now to control the situation as they are the only institution that really is organized enough or has the sort of power enough to be able to sort this out we saw quite a little amount of soldiers in the clashes last night people were actually criticizing the military for that saying you know where are the police where are the military the capital is on fire probably playing quite a careful game at the moment the tensions are very high many people here expect a curfew to be imposed as was imposed during the revolution following the revolution we expect that to be imposed in addition we expect as i said the military to possibly be having to it to the muslim brotherhood green to try and
rein in supporters come to some kind of political compromise to bring this country out of this chaos and political stalemates and of course you can follow belcher on twitter shares in the midst of the events and they gyptian capital and she's providing the latest updates and pictures from the country in crisis. now the muslim brotherhood supporters in says they'll remain in the streets and till that deposed leader is back in power dr mohamad abdalla zs from they sacramento islamic center was believes the undermining of the power of the by box only to tale since it happened in egypt is obviously mubarak's military going back in order to take the country back to the old mubarak men. as opposed to the revolution to the revolutionaries people who are cheering in the streets right now will be the first to cry tomorrow when we set the precedence that it's ok for people to go to the streets and for the military to oust an elected president what happens next so the
country elects the other guy who happens to be a liberal or or a socialist or whatever and then the islamists and the supporters of morsi millions of them will take to the street and then we oust the next guy and then we keep going this i mean that's not a democracy anymore that's that's the rule of the jungle. washington wish supporters the revolution in egypt two years ago has so far failed to give its verdict of what's happening in the country now and correspondent jonathan steele who reports extensively on the middle east believes egypt is deadlock is in deadlock on the situation is not being helped by their reluctance of those pas backers to move off the fans. by rounding up the muslim brotherhood leaders there undermining any chance of a real compromise dialogue to end this crisis they talk about they want national reconciliation well how can you have reconciliation if you lock off a president who is elected freely by an enormous number of egyptians it is
a military coup you can't get around that it's hard for the u.s. to come out publicly in support of a military coup so they have to make these noises ritual noises about. return to civilian rule but they're not really sure what what to do so i think the best solution is some sort of compromise and i wish we would hear that from some of these western leaders. and this is coming out for you later this hour struggling with starvation while the amount of charge here pretty triple across the u.k. the welfare minister calls it a free lunch linking the rise with people's greed not poverty and hunger and plenty more stories and if you mom and.

anyway. one. reason why panama with children was because it was the shortest distance between the land. so why would anybody want to do a new you know that is actually going from you to the west coast we just doesn't make any sense. but the investors behind the project insist that world trade needs a new worries and that the panama canal is not enough to handle the trade already conducted between the east and west so those who are laughing at the project right now might just have to change their tune if this game changing project succeeds. russia's city of cazan is pushing on its best face as the twenty seventh world universe to games are set to kick off with a spectacular putting so many presided over by president reggie repairs and as organizers apply the finishing touches also he's pole scald took a walk around the bank. export not more than thirteen thousand from one hundred
